Violin Making Step One

Wednesday, 16 May, 2012

The first thing to do, when making a violin, is to make either an inside mold or an outside mold. I chose inside as I am already familiar with outside molds from guitar making. Once the mold has been cut and shaped on the bandsaw and refined with files and sanding, the blocks are glued in and shaped to receive the ribs (sides in guitar maker lingo)
